A second felony charge of prisoner placing bodily fluid on government employee alleges that Dulaney spat blood on Jared Trotts without cause while Trotts was acting in his capacity as an employee of Healdton. That charge could carry a penalty of imprisonment for up to 2 years and a fine of up to $1000. Dulaney was also charged with misdemeanors of resisting an officer and threatening an act of violence.
